What Should Beauty Editors Do With Swag?

Wowza. I always knew that magazine editors got swag, but wait until you hear about this one. Fashion Week Daily reports that beauty editors received a very generous holiday gift: a Chanel 2.55 bag. Very nice indeed. In her new book, Nadine Haobsh talks about the immense perks of beauty editors — free trips, bags, jewelry, and the like — and I have to admit, some of the swag is really over the top.

This tangentially reminds me of a year-old story in which an Allure editor was fired for asking for beauty samples from companies, then selling them on eBay before they were on the market. Ruh-roh.

So I've got to ask you: Are you surprised by the extent of the goodies that magazine editors get? Do you think it's appropriate, or is it just another perk of the job? And what do you think they should do with the stuff?
